Unique Gifting Ideas For Christmas And The New Year’s

Published on December 20, 2018

The festive season is right around the corner. Every home is buzzing with jubilant energy and the air is charged with the spirit of giving. All your friends may have already picked their gifts for the holiday season. But what if the ocean of options is leaving you feeling flustered?

Last minute planning can be stressful and hence we have come up with an exclusive list of ideas to delight every friend of yours.

For the energetic explorers

A scratch-off world map is a creative gift for all the travel-enthusiasts to mark their adventures. It is an ideal choice for your friends/family who travel often as it helps them to strategically plan their future trips as well as have a throwback to all the destinations they have been to.

Another useful gift option is the waterproof dry bag by Earth Pak which has recently become quite famous amongst the water-sport devotees. Be it a crazy boat ride in Lake Tahoe or blissful canoeing in Phuket, it is the safest choice to carry one’s belongings.

What is that one thing that holds all things crucial when you’re travelling? You guessed it right – a wallet! But conventional wallets might not be the smartest choice to carry around when you’re abroad. The odds of your credit cards getting remotely scanned while you take a blissful stroll through the lanes of Paris are quite high these days. RFID-Blocking wallets can hence be the perfect gift from you to all your friends and family to ensure they have a safe vacation.

For the art aficionados

Le Sutra—India’s first art hotel—is one of a kind, to say the least. This luxurious art hotel has been developed in collaboration with 120 painters, 40 sculptors and 15 designers to add an artistic touch to each room. A reservation for a stay at this hotel is a perfect gift for your friends and family who idolize art.

What if we told you that there’s a speaker that can seamlessly combine art, music and lights together to create an immersive art experience? Sounds exhilarating, right? Soundwall is an art speaker company that beautifully intersects visual art and music. You can either choose from one of their designs or create a custom art speaker that fits your friends’ taste.

Another fun yet useful gift option is the portable mini printer by Polaroid. This light-weight printer allows you to print up to 25 photos per charge making it a perfect travel partner. Choose this as a gift for your friends and family this season to pack an immense surprise in a small package.

For the fitness fiends

No one knows more about the importance of hydration than your friend sweating off the calories at the gym. VitaJuwel offers elegant water bottles incorporating a sealed glass gempod made of precious gemstones like rose-quartz, amethyst, opal, etc. Surprise your friends with this chic and environment-friendly water bottle that deserves flaunting.

Have you been brainstorming for ideas to purchase something fun for your vegan and health-conscious friends? Then we have the ideal one for you. How do you like the sound of a vegan soft-serve maker? Bound to delight the young and old alike, make this your gifting option for your family and friends and receive great compliments.  

The list of fitness gift ideas isn’t complete without mentioning a fitness tracker. It makes a perfect gift for anyone who wants to keep a track of their everyday activity. Jazz it up with fancy metallic bands to add extra bling to this festive season.

For the glamour gurus

With the onset of winter, skin care becomes a priority for a lot of people. Byredo’s premium collection of hand soap and cream ensures delicate hydration with a subtle rose scent. Surprise your wife with this fine collection to add a touch of exquisite care to her beauty routine.  

Face masks have taken the beauty market by storm in 2018 making them a wonderful gift for every occasion possible. Choose Peter Thomas Roth’s Mask Frenzy offering options ranging from a 24K Gold mask to a Hungarian thermal mask, that’ll make your friend’s night routine fashionable like never before.

Perfumes never go out of style when it comes to gifting your special ones in life. Mutiny by Maison Margiela is one such option that brings a smile to anyone receiving it. Can’t remember their signature scent? Just gift them a totally new one and create an aura of excitement for your loved ones.

It is said that the sentiment behind the gift matters more than the gift itself. And we hope that our list inspires you to explore a few unique gifting ideas that combine both elegance and functionality. This festive season, the Botanika homes are buzzing with the holiday cheer so, don’t hold back. Delve into the spirit of joy and celebration, surrounded by your loved ones.
